after the arrest of the suspect, 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. now the focus is on what charges he will face and when. >> reporter: one week after two deadly bombings exploded in downtown boston killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a complex investigation. and it's hard to say exactly how he received that injury. there was a shootout in watertown. there were explosives thrown. so that's being looked into right now. it's hard to say how it owe kurd. >> reporter: we're learning more about the tense moments right before tsarnaev's arrest. this video shows him hiding out in a boat in a backyard in watertown. after 25 minutes of negotiations with fbi agents, tsarnaev was apprehended. >> three police officers surrounded the boat, other officers came and assisted. we held that position until the fbi hostage r

of the weekend. we know that the fbi is interrogating dzhokhar tsarnaev. what are they hoping to get from him at this point? >> interrogating may be a bit of a grand word here, because it's certainly not the kind of interrogation they had planned, where they speak to someone. it's being conducted with notes and nods and because he can't speak, he's on a ventilator. so it's a very slow process. but during this period, their government is limited in terms of what they can ask him. because they're doing this public safety exception to the miranda rule. they've not advised him of his rights. so they can only ask about potential threats to public safety. were there other conspirators, other bombs out there, any reason to believe that public safety is in any way jeopardized. >> pete, one of the persons cited in terms of this idea that there may have been more violent plans on order at the hands of the brothers is this person who was hijacked by the brothers on thursday night. and the driver of a mercedes suv. we know that he's been cooperating with police. is there anything else that we know about

as radical gets. >>steve: have you seen this? the dramatic video of police closing in on dzhokhar tsarnaev? they used an infrared thermal imaging camera to pinpoint his exact location and movements inside the boat. >>brian: joining us with more on this technology taken from above, anna kooiman. >> good morning. they are stunning, these images. they were taken while taking tsarnaev into custody. you can see in the video released by the massachusetts state police, the 19-year-old in the boat, that image you see there is his body highlighted to thermal imaging. police were able to monitor his every movement because of this technology. now watch this. those big black puffs, those are explosions believed to be the flash grenades police threw at him. the company that makes the thermal cameras said the equipment worked exactly how it was supposed to. >> i think it was a real win they could look through the cover and see him lying inside the technology has been around for decades, but as you can see it keeps getting better and better. flare has more than 100 cameras in law enforcement communities.

the page and move onto a sense of normalcy, but as the investigation continues into dzhokhar tsarnaev who remains injured and innovative. -- intubated. guest: the their travel is likely going to be key to understand whether or not this event was for an inspired, or perhaps even concocted in consultation with individuals abroad. key questions will likely revolve around the older brother, and secondary questions, how it did this individual seem to lead such a double life? all the family and friends that have come forward have been shocked. that happens quite frequently in this type of case, but in this case he really does seem to have been quite well liked and well integrated and kept this other part of his life entirely separate. host: and again, this is based on what we know so far. it seems like a lot of the questions into the older brother, the 26-europe, who spent six months in russia. there was a conversation over the weekend between the president and russian president vladimir putin. right now there is no strong reason to think that this is directly tied to a foreign terrorist group.

who has been all over this story. j dzhokhar tsarnaev will be charged in a civilian court given the debate we have been talking about this this morning. that will be happening to him? >> no question. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound

. at the white house yesterday jay carney told us that dzhokhar tsarnaev will not be tried as an enemy combatant no matter what lindsey graham says. and big fireworks here in washington yesterday over immigration reform. we'll bring you up to date on all of the above on current tv. the issues of the day. >> do you think that there is any chance we'll see this president even say the words "carbon tax"? >> with an open mind... >> has the time finally come for real immigration reform? >> ...and a distinctly satirical point of view. >> but you mentioned "great leadership" so i want to talk about donald rumsfeld. >> (laughter). >> watch the show. >> only on current tv. you know who is coming on to me now? you know the kind of guys that do reverse mortgage commercials? those types are coming on to me all the time now.

. dzhokhar tsarnaev has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction. he was read his miranda rights from his hospital and he will have access to a lawyer. the 19-year-old has been described as cooperative during questioning. forced to write his answers or nod yes or no. he told officials he and his brother came up with the idea for the attacks on their own, finding internet resources to learn how to make bombs. he has been assigned three public defenders and could very well face the death penalty. a weekend search of dzhokhar's college dorm room turned up a black jacket, a white hat and similar to the one in the surveillance photos he was allegedly wearing. investigators also want to question tamerlan tsarnaev's wife. the couple initially met at a nightclub. she later converted to islam, dropped out of college and had a child with him. her attorney has said that she had no suspicions that her husband might be plotting an attack. hundreds of people stood in silence at copley square at 2:50 p.m. one week after the bombings. president obama marked the moment of silence from the white h
